Sister of suicide bomber Maher Hbeishah: "He sought it [Martyrdom (Shahada)] for a long time. He would always pray: 'Allah, make us live happily and die as Martyrs.' Praise be to Allah, he achieved it. He sought it sincerely."
Brother of suicide bomber Imad Zubeidi: "For us, this is a wedding of Martyrdom (Shahada) - not mourning, but a wedding of Martyrdom. We are very proud that our brother gave himself for Palestine."
